About Malden Mills

Malden Mills suffered a devastating fire in 1995 that destroyed much of its operations, but rather than lay off employees, Feuerstein chose to keep the employees on the payroll with benefits until the mills could be rebuilt. His decision, based on kindness, principles, and values, not only benefited his employees, but also showed his commitment to his community.
